[WATCH] Get New York City's Best Cheap Hot Dog at Papaya King on Upper East Side

For 85 years, Papaya King on the Upper East Side has been the place to go to get a cheap hot dog lunch. In this video from the excellent Operation $5 Lunch series from our friends at Thrillist, watch as host Prez heads uptown to try one out.

The hot dog is an overlooked New York staple, from the dirty water dogs you find on the street to some of the establishments that were founded here in the city -- when done right, the hot dog can be a true delicacy. That's why on today's episode of Operation $5 Lunch, we sent Prez to check out Papaya King, a New York favorite since the 1930's.
